    Do you have any photos of your long tie down style bonnets? Also, what is the price range for your bonnets? I don’t need specific numbers just an idea!

    • Hello Caroline,
      Thank you for the message. You will find several photos of Tie-Down bonnets on my Facebook page, Talisman Custom Fly Bonnets. Our bonnets are priced at $139CAD, crystal and cording extra.
      Kind regards,

    Can you make design recommendations? I love the layering of the #2 bonnet above, but prefer the U-shaped style. Our barn colors are navy for the base, hunter green for the trim, with off-white for the piping/accent/monogramming. So, three colors in all. I’m not interested in the scalloping or jewels. Can you design a bonnet for our barn with that information?? Thanks! Erica

    • Hello Erica,

      Thank you for the message. We can easily customize bonnets for the different horse requirements. All we would need is your instructions. Your colours would work well in several combinations. Here are some edging suggestions, all with navy base colour:
      1. hunter cord, with 2 crochet rows beige ( the beige is quite ivory in colour), then 2 rows hunter on the outside
      2. beige cord ( the beige cord is also more ivory in colour), with 1 row beige, then 3 rows hunter on the outside
      3. beige cord with 2 rows beige, 2 rows hunter, 1 row navy on the outside
      4. 1 row beige, 1 row hunter, 2 rows navy on the outside
      5. 2 rows beige, 2 rows hunter, 1 row navy on the outside

      1 row of crochet edging is about 1/4 inch wide, 2 rows are about 1/2 inch wide

      Once you have an idea of what you prefer, we can email a photo of a small sample of the edgings you select so you can have a pretty good idea of the look before we go ahead with the actual bonnets.

      Our pricing is a s follows:
      bonnet: any size, shape or crochet edging colours, regular stretchy ears $139
      cording: $5 per row
      Quiet Ears (padded ears): $30

      shipping in Canada included, sales tax where applicable.

      If you require your logo on the front of the bonnet , we will make an embroidered crest which is then sewn onto the bonnet.There is a one time digitizing fee of $40 ( unless you already have a .emb, or .dst embroidery file of the logo). Crests with your logo embroidered on them are $18 each.

      I would be happy to help with any other questions you may have. Please email them to me at, or if you prefer to call, my cell number is 514-232-2190.

      Kind regards,
      Brigitte Potenza

    Also, do you recommend transposing the colors to accommodate the different colors or horses? Head and face shapes?

    Hey I was wandering how to order/ custom design a bonnet, thanks

    • Hello Tahlia, feel free to send an email to me at describing the bonnet you had in mind. If you need help designing a bonnet, I would be happy to assist. Most of the colour options are on the order form found on my website. However, by communicating directly, you wouldn’t need to fill out the form. Thank you!
